Schedule of planning applications with recommendations.





21/0076/FULL ERECTION OF AN OPEN AIR BAR AND RESTAURANT WITH MARQUEE ON NEW PONTOONS (as amplified by as amplified by Construction Management Statement and Shadow HRA received 17 May 2021)

Haslar Marina  Haslar Road  Gosport  Hampshire  PO12 1NU 


Consideration was given to a report of the Development Manager recommending that planning application 21/0076/FULL be approved.


A deputation was received from Councillor Mrs Cully as Councillor for Town Ward 


She advised that she had received communication from several residents who were concerned about the proposal and the impact would have on the Watergate. 


The new proposal would cause additional noise with longer opening hours and more disturbance particularly if the wind was in an unfavourable direction.


Councillor Mrs Cully advised that she agreed with the inclusion of a lighting and noise management plan and expressed concern that there was no parking included as part of it which would present parking issues in the surrounding area and would infringe on the reserved spaces for Seward Tower and Harbour Tower


The Board was advised that suppliers often used the single gate located close to the Timespace for deliveries and that these deliveries along with boat owners and would use the visitors spaces, which in turn would mean that there were no visitors spaces available.


It was suggested that deliveries be restricted from using the access at the Timespace and be rediverted along to the larger access at the bottom of Haslar Bridge and that this be included in the service plan to ease the concerns of residents.


The Board was advised that the flats created a microclimate and that as a result noise from it magnified. This would be the third hospitality site in the marina and it was felt that this was excessive.


Councillor Meenaghan was invited to address the Board as Ward Councillor. She advised the Board that she was contacted by residents who had expressed concerns about the noise the site would create. The proposal would mainly be used by those using the marina and felt that support should be provided for the economy outside the marina.


The Board was advised that the proposal was for use between April and October and that heaters and blankets would be provided. Concern was expressed that the heating would be using a generator and fossil fuels which went against proposals to better address climate change.


It was felt that the tent would be an eyesore on what was a pleasant promenade and as the marquee deteriorated through exposure to wind and sunshine it would be a blot on the landscape.


In answer to a Member’s question, the Board was advised that it was possible to condition the use of the side gate for the delivery of food.


A Member also queried whether it would be possible to condition that no external heating be used on the site. The Board was advised that planning permission would not be required to install heaters.


In answer to additional question, the Board was advised that the facilities,  ...  view the full minutes text for item 95.
